Recalled Food Lawsuits
Class Action Attorneys Helping Victims of Food Illness Nationwide
When someone is made ill or worse by food they ate, they or their family may qualify as a plaintiff in a class action lawsuit.

Recalled food lawsuits follow the same theories of liability as product liability law. Our attorney’s are experienced in complex product liability litigation which aids in the processing of food recall claims for plaintiffs. When bringing a Food Poisoning Lawsuit Claim there are three things which need to be proven:
Fault - The food chain had issues with regard to food processing, preparation, storage or handling.
Causation - The issue of fault caused the food to become contaminated.
Damages – Proof of purchase or use, injuries and losses suffered by the consumer of the contaminated food.
Was I Poisoned By a Recalled Food?

That time may be longer or shorter, depending on the cause of the food poisoning and your body. You can check out our legal news section for recall and food outbreak news from the federal government.
